I didn't even know it existed until I came across it at the video store. In fact at the time I didn't know the Quatermass movies were based on BBC shows. A lot of us here in the US were ignorant of the origins of British characters like Quatermass and Doctor Who. For a lot of us here, our only exposure to Doctor Who was the two movies with Peter Cushing, then when the series started getting shown in the States, the first episodes we saw were the ones with Tom Baker. We didn't get to see the earlier ones until later. Same story with "The Avengers", the first ones we saw were the ones with Dianna Rigg.

I'm sure we got the same thing over here. I remember "Man from Atlantis" had already been cancelled before it premiered over here, and I don't think Star Trek played over here until the third season was nearly over in the states.

Anyway, "Quatermass" was a four part serial and I have downloaded all of them (individually) via bit-torrent so, come 2030, they're ready to upload!
